In an effort to track employment of minorities and females in the workforce, the EEOC requires certain employers to complete and file an Employer Information (EEO-1) Report by Sept. 30 of each year.
Private employers must file an EEO-1 report if they:
- Have 100 or more employees and are subject to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Have fewer than 100 employees but are a subsidiary or affiliate of a larger company and generally operate as a single business enterprise.
- Are federal contractors with 50 or more employees or that do business with the federal government worth $50,000 or more per year.
Employers must provide a count of employees by job category, ethnicity, race and gender.
